Fireplace in a Signature 8310SS

Not quite sure why FR hasn't offered an electric fireplace option in the Signature 8310SS other than it appears that they poorly located a few terminals just below the TV.

Has anyone added a fireplace to this model? We really like this rear kitchen model, but no fireplace is a show stopper. Sad.

I added a fireplace in my Rockwood 2604. The entertainment center looked something like yours.

The space under the TV was empty except for the subwoofer, and was just deep enough to install a 7" deep electric fireplace. I removed the cabinet doors, trimmed some wood to create a wide enough opening, relocated the subwoofer and plugged the fireplace into the receptacle below the TV.

Not hard to do, but make sure you take measurements twice and pick the appropriate sized fireplace.

Pictures would be nice.
Where do you relocate the big subwoofer ?

I didn't take any installation pictures, but it should be easy to take measurements and find a suitably sized fireplace insert.

I just moved the subwoofer to the other side of the cabinet. Your cabinet is much larger than mine, so I think you should be able to do it if it is deep enough and has an electric receptacle nearby.

Some folks add a dedicated fireplace receptacle that gets power separately through a 20 amp extension cord to the power box. This lets you run it independently of your built in 30 or 50 amp converter. Lets you run more appliances at the same time.

Sounds like a mod waiting to happen !
I'll take measurements of my space and see what I can come up with.
Thanks for sharing this.

Well....I am guessing no one has added a fireplace to the 8310SS and may also account for why there aren't many of these available on dealers lots. Most will tell you that the fireplaces help sell RVs.
